Windows Home Server: Client-Side SDK
As reported elsewhere (MS Windows Home Server and Windows Home Server Blog), there is a new video on Channel 9 (as well as one on on10.net with Charlie Kindel) that is a sit down with Home Server Lead Developer Chris Gray (get back to the blogging man!) where he talks about building add-ins for Windows Home Server.
What hasn't been reported anywhere else is that Chris also mentioned a client-side SDK for Home Server and when I asked about it Home Server General Manager Charlie Kindel chimed in and said in part:
Chris sorta "mis-spoke" and "let the cat out of the bag" when he talked about the client-side SDK stuff.
We are working on it.
We have not announced when it will be released in pre-release form.
We have not announced when it will be released in the product.
Great to hear it's being worked on and so long as it gives the same kind of access to WHS as the functionality in Microsoft.HomeServer.SDK.Interop.v1 does on the server I'll be thrilled.
If they give us a way to first put client-side code on the server and then deploy it to clients automatically... I'll be ecstatic.
Granted the first bit is more likely in a V1 product than the second... a dev still has to hope.
